Job Description

Are you a doctor who wants to continue helping people but needs a better work-life balance?

Join our Assessments Division and thrive as you use your clinical skills in a different way and help people move forward with their lives.

This is a permanent role, Monday-Friday 9-5.

Day-to-day, you’ll carry out telephone, video, or face-to-face assessments to understand how a person's disability or health condition affects their daily life. You’ll listen to their experiences, ask questions, and use your insights to produce a factual report to help the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) determine their eligibility for benefits. It’s important work that has a big impact on real lives, so we’ll make sure you get the time you need with each customer to undertake a quality and respectful service.

You must have fantastic interpersonal skills along with the ability to write concise reports, be comfortable working towards individual and team targets in a supportive environment.

You will receive:

  • Competitive salary: £72,000 for roles outside of London, or £84,200 based in London.
  • Flexible working arrangements: you won’t be expected to work long days, do night shifts or take work home. Instead, you can work full time, part time or hybrid in a pattern that gives you genuine work life balance.
  • Clinical development: we support your continuing medical education and provide time for clinical study with ongoing CPD support.
  • Career development: we offer training programmes to develop your skills and clinical knowledge, as well as opportunities for progression at every stage of your career – including opportunities to explore other roles within Maximus.
  • Revalidation support: we support you through the process and refund the cost of your revalidation.
  • Supportive culture: we offer regular feedback and a coaching tool to help you deliver quality outputs for customers and thrive in your career with us.
  • Inclusive environment: as a Disability Confident Leader we are committed to creating a fair, inclusive workplace for all. Join one of our colleague networks and champion DE&I initiatives and shape our inclusive culture.
  • Excellent benefits: we offer a wide range of core and voluntary benefits that can be tailored to meet your needs and personal circumstances.

From major sporting fixtures such as the UEFA Champions League Final, Six Nations Rugby, championship boxing and WWE (arriving this September), to major theatre productions, big-name touring comedy acts, and musicians. Top this off with a variety of quirkier events such as music concerts at Cardiff Castle, street food festivals, pop-ups, and secret cinemas, and you’ll find that there’s always something different to do here.
